Ghazi­abad oth­er­wise called the ‘Gate­way Of Ut­tar Pradesh’ is a sub­ur­ban dis­trict of UP si­t­u­ated in the north of In­dia. Ghazi­abad’s land­scape also comes un­der Na­tional Cap­i­tal Re­gion (NCR). Its pop­u­la­tion stands the third high­est in the re­gion of Ut­tar Pradesh.

Ghazi­abad is a fast grow­ing and de­vel­op­ing city rea­son be­ing it is com­ple­mented by neigh­bor­ing ci­ties as Delhi and Gur­gaon. The IT, Ed­u­ca­tion and In­dus­try sec­tor are snow­balling as a sig­nif­i­cant part of this de­vel­op­ment.

IN­DUS­TRIAL SEC­TOR IN GHAZI­ABAD

Ghazi­abad is a hub of small in­dus­tries in ar­eas like Sahibabad, but there is the pres­ence of other big com­pa­nies which plays an in­stru­men­tal role in the growth of Ghazi­abad. These in­dus­tries are Bharat Elec­tron­ics Lim­ited and Cen­tral Elec­tron­ics Lim­ited. Some For­eign com­pa­nies like Dan­foss In­dia Ltd., Indo-Bul­gar Food Ltd. And In­ter­na­tional To­bacco Ltd. also joins the sec­tor.

REAL ES­TATE HUB

As the pro­posal of widen­ing the NH-24 into 4-16 lanes be­tween Ghazi­abad-Delhi bor­der and Dasna has been made, which at­tracts & wel­comes the res­i­den­tial & com­mer­cial pro­jects along the high­way. Also, some big devel­op­ers are Cross­ings Repub­lik, fol­lowed by An­sal, Wave & An­triksh. As a part of de­vel­op­ment metro will be ex­tended to new bus stand by 2016-17.

ED­U­CA­TIONAL SEC­TOR

Ghazi­abad is also pro­gress­ing in the field of ed­u­ca­tion, with some well known col­leges be­ing a part of Ghazi­abad’s knowl­edge and learn­ing space. In this spe­cial­ized sec­tor of ed­u­ca­tion, Col­leges that read in the or­der of In­draprastha Engi­neer­ing Col­lege (IEC), ABES Engi­neer­ing Col­lege, Kr­ishna In­sti­tute of Engi­neer­ing & Tech­nol­ogy (KIET), IME Law Col­lege and NIFA rules the roost.

IT MAR­KET IN THE CITY

Shiva Tower is Ghazi­abad’s old­est mar­ket. At a time the IT sec­tor was at it’s peak but when the on­line mar­ket suf­fered a lot. This leads to a great loss IT mar­ket. Ev­ery­one starts choos­ing on­line in­stead of offline. This be­came the rea­son for shut­down of many re­tail shops & ven­dors.

Su­mit Sharma from Al­pha Tech Com­put­ers states, “On­line Shop­ping is big chal­lenge nowa­days, peo­ple starts shop­ping on­line & no one comes to shops. This af­fects his busi­ness a lot.” He added, “the big deal­ers who have more than one busi­ness are not much af­fected but deal­ers like him who only de­pends on one shop suf­fers a lot.”

This be­came a se­ri­ous point to brain­storm upon as far as the UP Gov­ern­ment is con­cerned. The ad­min­is­tra­tion from its part do not want re­tail­ers to suf­fer so a manda­tory 5% en­try tax has been for­mu­lated on e-com­merce sites which has driven as well as lead to some key im­prove­ment in the mar­ket.

As Ghazi­abad’s land­scape is on the way to de­vel­op­ment, the mar­ket is in­creas­ing in its mag­ni­tude and do­ing good busi­ness.
